I'd like to download the above manual in txt format, but the download link just shows a web page with the text embedded into html. (The pdf download link works fine.) The particular reason I want the txt is to search, index, and divide it up with tools I am accustomed to. Also, it would be possible to read the txt on older hardware, perhaps even on the computers it describes.

I can extract the txt from the html, but I would like to know if there's a reason downloading txt has been made inconvenient in this way.

Click on "Show All (14 files)" towards the bottom of the right-side of the page. Then on the djvu.txt file .. it's OCR so errors but plain text.

Oh, I didn't see the little link. It works fine. Thanks for that, & sorry for the fuss.
